This SENSATIONAL film contains the greatest line...
"Don't let's not ask for the MOON, when we have the STARS"
Montage from one of the Greatest Love Stories, "Now Voyager" starring Bette Davis and Paul Henreid.

"Now Voyager" is a 1942 American drama film starring Bette Davis, Paul Henreid, and Claude Rains, and directed by Irving Rapper. The screenplay by Casey Robinson is based on the 1941 novel of the same name by Olive Higgins Prouty.

Prouty borrowed her title from the Walt Whitman poem "The Untold Want," which reads in its entirety,
"The untold want by life and land ne'er granted, Now voyager sail thou forth to seek and find."
In 2007, Now, Voyager was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." The film ranks #23 on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Passions, a list of the top love stories in American cinema. Film critic Steven Jay Schneider suggests the film continues to be popular due not only to its star power but also the "emotional crescendos" engendered in the storyline.

Music is "Two Cigarettes In The Dark", Glen Gray Casa Loma Orchestra, Kenny Sargent vocal

Such a wonderful film I saw on TV a couple of times. Those were the films were every word spoken by the actors could be heard and understood...and most films had wonderful dialogue and a proper story....Something aboput Black'n'White movies makes them so atmospheric....Most enjoyable Video Ginny.....Best Regards.....Dave
